186 | 2015 INTERNATIONAL CES DAILY | JANUARY 6-9, 2015 NEW & NOTEWORTHY NEW PRODUCTS DEBUTING AT 2015 INTERNATIONAL CES CESWEB.ORG #CES2015 New Elan URC Features Built-In Home Control BOOTH 71039 A universal remote controller that offers complete home control is now a reality through the new Elan g1 from Core Brands' Elan Home Systems. Requiring no monthly contract and offering a wide variety of home control functionality, the new Elan g1 is leaps and bounds ahead of other low-cost home control solutions, the company said. This is the company's f rst entry into the sub-$1,000 market; for about the price of a new TV, users can gain complete control over their homes in addition to their television displays. The g1 lets homeowners use a single handheld remote control to manage up to 16 zones of security, two electronic door locks, an AVR with up to 32 connected TVs, up to 24 lighting keypads, three thermostats, three IP surveillance cameras and up to 16 groups of irrigation. And because Elan has so much experience in home control, the system is designed to be fully expandable to grow with any user's home or budget. Everything comes in one package, including the main unit, the remote and several accessories that installers can use to maximize the system's functionality. While using the system is as simple as using a TV, installing it is a little more complicated. That's why Elan only offers the system through certi- f ed professional tech- nolog y i nteg r ator s, a l i s t of wh ic h c a n be found at its web- site. Exact pricing and availability will be an- nounced at the show. HearNotes Chimes In With Wire-Free Earbuds BOOTH 74437 Designed for everyone who wants to listen to music during most any activity, but gets frustrated with tangled wires and the existing limitations from so-called wireless options, there is HearNotes, which will be shown at International CES. According to the San Francisco-based start-up, these wire-free earbuds are a break- through solution that strongly outperforms its Bluetooth alternatives. The listening experience is further enhanced with the technology's low latency and power consumption that renders a sleek and attractive design for the fashionable consumer. "Music and technology lovers have long known that Bluetooth does not deliver outstand- ing sound quality," said Patrick Donohue, HearNotes CEO. "Our initial research indicated that consumers were strongly vocal about their desire for a superior portable audio solution. The most astonishing f nd was not only this segment's frustrations with Bluetooth, but that their feedback was being largely ignored by the headphone industry." What def nes these earbuds are the core technology and innovative design. HearNotes is integrated with Microchip's protocol, Kleer, which offers advantages, according to Hear- Notes, over other wireless solutions. Kleer is said to deliver lossless, CD-quality audio that is superior to the comparable Bluetooth alternative. A small transmit- ter plugs into the 3.5mm headphone jack of the listening device so no pairing is needed and virtually any device is compatible. HearNotes earbuds are expected to be available in early 2015 with an MSRP of $349. Monster Debuts DNA Pro 2.0 Active BOOTHS 12806, 12814, N238 Monster's DNA Pro 2.0 Active headphones feature Bluetooth with AptX, active noise canceling, and the company's Pure Monster Sound technology for "studio- quality detail, dynamics and impact of live music." Other details include advanced CVC echo canceling and wind-noise reduction for crystal-clear calls; direct digital mode USB for high-resolution listening; analog bypass for listening to analog sources and without power; 20 hours of battery life; and capacitive touch controls for volume and track changes. Pricing and availability will be given at the show.
